30th birthday

As promised, here are some pics from my 30 birthday party (about 6 months pregnant) earlier this month; as usual, they’re courtesy of Kristen and Tim. So many people did so much to help make this happen, from planting new sod in the front yard to stringing lights to buying food to creating flower arrangements and playlists to lending sound equipment to writing poetry and sharing encouraging words with me in front of everyone: thank you again everyone (especially Mark, Mom, Dad, Kristen, Tim, & Emily). I felt entirely loved and celebrated — a fantastic way to enter a new decade!
